Coventry Magic Circle are trying to solve a vanishing trick

Coventry Magic Circle are trying to solve a vanishing trick. They have only 25 active members, half the number they had once. Where has all the talent gone? Mr. Will Stanley, a founder of the circle 35 years ago, and a past president, blames television and other diversions. "Young people don't bother to learn," he says. The circle are prepared to give instructions to would-be conjourers, illusionists, ventriloquists or Punch and Judy puppeteers. A beginners class is meeting fortnightly at the Maudsley Hotel. The next meeting is tomorrow night. Speaking a the circle's dinner dance at the Berkelely Hotel, Canon Lawrence Jackson, vicar of Holy Trinity, said that in a city as fast growing and cosmopolitan as Coventry, organisations that welded together people with standards and ideals in a common prupose, were especially valuable. In this photograph Canon Jackson tries out a dangerous-looking illusion for Mr. Morgan, president of the Coventry Magic Circle, at the dinner dance. Looking on are Mrs. Jackson and Mrs. Morgan.
